There are member's using more than 1.45V on Sandy Bridge-E and haven't heard a word about degrading chips, Ivy Bridge is volt friendly.
Systemlord, I think that table is from sin's guide that he made? And it is a very good and useful table, but not an offical one from Intel.
Your point about the IB's being voltage friendly is very true. And so far I have not heard anyone complaining about degraded IBs, while by this time period, when we were all using SBs, we had heard many stories of degraded SBs. IBs are much tougher. I have been amazed by what some of our guys here have done in the 5GHz club with their voltage on air/water.
PS - while I have heard about the "degraded" LN2 capability of delided chips for some, but that is not the typical degradation from temp or vcore which does not seem to be happening much if at all.
